    Magnetic energy?
    Potential energy can be associated with a field, like a ball on top of a hill in a gravitational field.
    Or you can have potential energy associated with a magnetic field, like a ferrous object at a distance from a magnet.
    The force from…

    Something is wrong here. Magnetic flux is measured in webers or volt-seconds, not in energy units like electron volts.
    This is like saying that you weigh 2 meters.

    A: Hey boss! You know that new energy source I found out about online? They're now taking orders and I think we should give it a try.

    B: Is that the one based on cold fusion you told me about? Still seems unlikely.

    A: No actually it's Low Energy…

    Here are links to the pdf versions of the Google patent applications.


    The first two appear to have the same figures and specifications.


    When a patent is examined, the USPTO may determine that the claims are directed to more than one invention and…

    It could be done pretty easily with thermoelectric generators. Here is a company that makes some that are in the range of 7-12% efficient depending on delta-T.

    400 W would require around 20 of these…

    I will check with my friends and Ebay to see if I can find a discharge tube to try. I may also have a big supply that could work.

    This is much more interesting if you try to think of a magic act that could produce a similar output from similar inputs.

    First, get a 400W power supply that can be set to limit at 20V and 19A.


    Connect the power supply output directly to the gas…

    The key questions is not whether you call it foam or bubbles, but whether it is or is not 100% liquid. The paper assumes that the entire volume below the observed level is liquid, and the enthalpy calculation is based on vaporizing that volume. It is…

    I've been able to stabilize the Clacker somewhat with adjustments to the driver. Here's a brief update video:

    Great work on the clacker. It seems to be fast enough to generate repeatable experiments while clearing momentary shorts. The piezo actuator I suggested might be used to increase the repetition rate, but that could be a future enhancement if it seems…

    Here is a modified version of the piezo bender that avoids the need to immerse the bender in the electrolyte. That way we can use uninsulated benders which are easier to find and cheaper.

    The difference between a solenoid and this setup is that the ferromagnetic material of the solenoid directs the B field towards the internal slug and completes the magnetic circuit. With parallel wires, if…

    Regarding insulation, I do not know what would stand up to the acid. There may be other coatings that could be added if necessary. Another option would be to use shrink-wrap like the type used to insulate wires. It would be easy…

    I will work on a drawing of my thoughts on this.

    To make a specific proposal, it would be helpful to know what material would be best to use for supporting and connecting hardware. Do you or CAN have any thoughts on this? What…

    It seems like the experiment is supposed to have these states:
    S0: Plating = high resistance, low current.

    S1: Shorted = low resistance, high current. Inductor is charging up.

    S2: Discharge = high resistance, high current, high voltage, . Indcuctor…

    It seems like you would need a sustained short in order to dump energy into the inductor during the current pulse. Then when the high current clears the short, the inductor delivers the high voltage to cause the sparking.

    If your initial electrode…

    On the video feed, I cannot quite make out the scales on the scope. Can you turn up the brightness of the scope or send us the channel settings and how the probes are connected?
